New Nickel-Lithium Battery Has Ultra-High Energy Density

All Cars Electric

Researchers at Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have succeeded in making the world's first Ni-Li battery, a formulation that holds more than 3.5 times the energy of Li-ion batteries and doesn't run the risk of catching fire. By including a membrane made of the recently developed glass-ceramic

DOE to award almost $20M to new research and development projects for advanced vehicle technologies

Green Car Congress

This topic seeks proof-of-concept, or seedling projects that complement the VTO Battery500 Consortium’s research to more than double the specific energy (to 500 watt-hours per kilogram) of lithium battery technologies which will result in smaller, lighter weight, less expensive battery packs, and more affordable electric vehicles. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is issuing a program-wide funding opportunity ( DE-FOA-0001629 ) for the Vehicle Technologies Office of up to $19.7

DOE to issue $47M FY17 Vehicle Technologies program-wide funding opportunity

Green Car Congress

The objective of the VTO Battery500 Program is to research, develop, and demonstrate lithium battery technologies capable of achieving a cell specific energy of ≥500 Wh/kg while achieving 1,000 cycles. The two technologies being developed in the program are Lithium metal/Sulfur and Lithium metal/high Nickel Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) cells, using solid or concentrated liquid electrolytes.
